May 29, 2017 - I am excited about 9270 Beach Boulevard that I just listed for sale for $1,450,000. The team has been working for well over a year to update online marketing strategies and we're super excited to throw everything at this one. In the next couple of weeks, you'll see drone flyover videos, professionally printed booklets, social media and online retargeting ads and much more.
Experience it NOW in 3D and Virtual Reality:
May 30, 2017 - I also listed 103 Oak Ridge Place after another real estate company couldn’t get it sold. This house was completely renovated in 2015 and our marketing generated TWO OFFERS within days ultimately landing a contract OVER the asking price. The location of this house couldn't get much better! You're close to local dining gems such as Capt. Anderson's and The Grand Marlin while still being away from the traffic on main roads.
May 31, 2017 - I listed a 2BR/2BA+BUNK in Sunrise Beach for $325,000. This one will be sold unfurnished and is the BEST PRICE in the building. Also within walking distance just down the street (or the beach) from local favorite, Sharky's Beachfront Restaurant
June 2, 2017 - Some past customers called me and I listed a golf villa in Edgewater for $145,000…what a price for 2BR this close to the beach. Not only do you have access to ALL of Edgewater's beautiful amenities, but you can also walk across the street to the Shoppes at Edgewater and enjoy a lovely evening at Firefly -- you can't beat the sunset special! Or head over for a cold beer or a game of ping pong at Nivol Brewery, the first micro-brewing company in Bay County.
June 5, 2017 - Another past customer called to sell her gulf-front condo. I have closed 13 transactions with her over the last two years and her units always look great. This 1BR/1BA in Long Beach has a gulf front master bedroom and is seriously upgraded and listed for $250,000.
June 6, 2017 - Last month, I generated multiple offers for a condo in Nautilus Cove within days. Another owner called me and we put her #1001 on the market for $120,000. I already have one offer and 6 showings arranged…should go fast. Nautilus Cove is conveniently located near Pier Park, making it easy to grab dinner at Margaritaville, catch the latest movie at The Grand Theatre, or have a family fun night out at Dave & Buster's.
June 7, 2017 - Working with first time home buyers is very gratifying. I have been meeting a US Air Force meteorologist and her boyfriend for the past few weeks at 6:30 at night to look at houses and she found the perfect house and got it under contract. 3724 Tiki Drive is going be a nice investment for her and even more important, a great place to call home. Also located off of North Lagoon Drive, you can easily (and safely) ride your bike to the beach or the farmer's market on the well-paved sidewalk. Think about it... you're less than 2 miles from dining on the water!
It has been an interesting couple weeks for appraisals with issues on THREE of them. I closed a Sunbird unit on June 7th and had been working with the seller. The appraisal came in $6,000 low but I negotiated and got the buyer to pay well over the appraised value.
On a Calypso unit, the value came in ok, but the lender had an issue with some verbiage in the appraisal. I worked to resolve this with the HOA and have kept everything on track to close at a very high price for a 2BR/2BA+BUNK.
I was also working with a buyer on a Horizon South unit. I worked a low appraisal to their advantage to get them a discount off of their original contract price of $170,000.
I am seeing this more and more so whether you are buying or selling, be sure you understand the potential appraisal issues before you get too far into a contract.
You Could Save BIG MONEY just by avoiding these common mistakes!
You just bought a beautiful gulf-front condo or cute little beach cottage and want to handle the rentals yourself?
Be sure you know the right things to ask before jumping in!
